About The Event

The first peace wall was erected in Belfast on 10th September 1969, 50 years ago, separating the Shankill from the Falls. In association with our photographic exhibition ‘Cordon Sanitaire’ by Frankie Quinn, Belfast Exposed will host ‘Peace Walls 50 Years On’, a seminar which will query the impact, longevity and future of Peace Lines, Walls and Interfaces.

The seminar panel includes: Michael McEvoy (Department of Justice), Peter Osbourne (former chair of Community Relations Council), Paul Mullan (National Lottery Heritage Fund), Vicky Cosstick (author of ‘Towards a City Without Walls’), Ciaran Mackel (architect), Professor Donovan Wylie (photography dept, Ulster University) and Kate Catterall (Associate Professor of Design, The University of Texas, Austin).

Seminar will take place in Belfast Exposed on Tuesday 10th September 2019 at 12:30pm. Seminar will begin at 1pm.

A short video, produced by Department of Justice NI, talking about the Seminar in Belfast Exposed, including the thoughts from the speakers on the panel.
